Man on the move.

In the latest installment of our series spotlighting our stylish buying team, we connected with Florida native Ross Vigeant, who’s an assistant buyer in the advanced designer department (in other words: he buys from the world’s top brands), but he also runs point on the socks and underwear you see on the site (in other words: he knows about hose).
